Mascara is an essential part of any makeup routine. It enhances the beauty of your eyes, making them appear more prominent and attractive. The addition of waterproof mascara in your makeup kit makes it even better. It allows you to wear mascara all day without worrying about smudging or running due to sweat, tears, or rain. However, applying and wearing waterproof mascara requires some extra care than regular mascaras to ensure you look and feel great throughout the day.
Here are some tips on how to properly apply and wear waterproof mascara:
1. Choose the Right Mascara
Before you can apply waterproof mascara, you need to buy the right product that suits your needs. There are several types of waterproof mascaras available in the market, such as lengthening, volumizing, curling, among others. You can choose one that aligns with your preferences.
2. Curl Your Lashes
Curling your lashes before applying the mascara can make them look even longer and more defined. Use an eyelash curler to gently curl your lashes before applying mascara. Ensure that the curler gripes the eyelash at the base and hold it for about ten seconds. Curling the lashes after applying mascara can cause the mascara to clump and stick to the curler, ruining the look.
3. Apply Mascara Wisely
Apply mascara from the base of your lashes to the tips. Begin from the inner corners of your eye and move outwards, holding the wand vertically for the lower lashes and horizontally for the upper lashes. Apply 2-3 coats if needed, allowing drying time in between coats.
4. Remove the Excess Mascara
Removing excess mascara from the wand before application helps you avoid clumps. You can use a tissue or a clean mascara wand. Applying mascara with clumps looks terrible, and it makes your lashes to appear unnatural and unattractive.
5. Waterproofing your makeup
Most waterproof mascara requires waterproof remover to get them removed. Before using any waterproof cosmetics make sure you are prepared with oil-based makeup remover and proper tools for removing, so it’s easy to clean up and make sure it doesn’t damage your lashes.
6. Avoid Touching Your Eyes
Waterproof mascara dries quickly and may leave marks on your skin and smudge if you touch your eyes. Avoid itching your eyes or wiping them too hard if they feel itchy, or watery. If you need to remove smudges or accidentally touch your lashes, use a cotton swab dipped in waterproof remover.
Waterproof mascara is perfect for long hot days or a night out without having to worry about running, sweating, or your mascara rubbing off. However, correct application and preparation are necessary to get the best out of it. Follow the tips to properly apply and wear waterproof mascara to improve your look and enhance the beauty of your eyes.
